COBALT BLUE TURQUOISE
Old Holland Cobalt Blue Turquoise is opaque and in its full tube strength, a deep turquoise. It washes down and lifts and can produce a wide range of values. This pigment is classifieds as oxides of cobalt and chromium. I am no chemist but that sounds like the explanation for this blue shifts to a greener side than most cobalts.

“I am a contemplative artist who has trouble accessing verbal skills. Finding the right words to talk about the amazing things I observe around me can be frustrating. It is much more natural for me to pick up a paintbrush, some embroidery floss or my camera when I wish to share some new discovery. The artwork I create is meant to be enjoyed on whatever level the viewer experiences it and not layered with complex meaning. Feathers, fur, flowers and the incredible variation I find in wildlife not only inspire me, but compel me to share every nuance with you.
